Age of Entry

Children must turn five years old by December 31st the year they enter kindergarten.

Many factors influence a child’s success, such as physical and emotional well being, language, intellectual and social development. Parents know their children better than anyone else. You may choose to wait a year if you are not sure your child is ready. It may be helpful to talk to an early childhood educator or your public health nurse.

Your child must complete the kindergarten year before entering Grade 1.
